Two days ago i connected via LogMeIn with a friend whose computer needed a lot of cleaning ;due to someone hitting the wireless modem at his home the connection suddenly vanished and i had the 'sensation' the pc was kind of damaged as if the wire had gone off.
Yesterday i wanted to install an upgraded program(BOClean),uninstall worked fine,but when i installed it the traybar icon wouldnt show up no matter what i did, so i had a look at msconfig and found only 3 of 6-8 program entries were there.
Tried to reinstall my antivirus Avast! and same thing happened:half of the program working,no icon in systemtray.
In the meantime i had run also my other security programs(TrojanRemover,AdAware,SpyBot,CWS,ADS) and none found anything spyware wise.
When i ran Superantispyware i had a shock:
Trojan.Downloade-LongJump 501 items
Trojan.Downloader-VS Toolbar 161 items
both have countless Files,Memory Processes,Registry Keys.
I proceeded to delete,but wasnt allowed to because:
'The instruction "0x7c920c27" referred to memory
"0x00a2f1ad".Memory could not be "read" '
No other scan detects anything and the files point to each downloaded file in my pc,practically all the OS,which seems unlikely and makes me think about a FP.
Undoubtedly i have had a damage at StartUp and i am now unable to properly install programs....but this could be on account of something more ordinary.....
I hope Nick can tell me something today before i have to reinstall......
Edit-forgot to mention i had tried and uninstalled a few days ago the iranian HIPS Neoava.
